We all have busy schedules, and coming to the Madigan Library for research help can seem impossible. Fortunately for you, the databases and catalog are available online 24/7 so you can search from anywhere, anytime.
If you are off campus, you will need to enter your network username and password--the same sign ons you use to log onto a computer on campus--to have access to the databases. For example: if your email is email@example.com, your network username would be abc1.
Proquest is one of our most popular databases and is a more user-friendly database. When searching for information in Proquest, the limiters are easy to set and choose. Proquest offers a wide range of sources including scholarly articles, periodicals, trade journals, books, and more on a variety of subjects. The Proquest database simultaneously searches across multiple subject specific databases to locate results.
While on-campus, when you search Google Scholar, a message to the right of the article link with say "Get it @ Madigan Library," which means that we have the resource at Madigan Library. Clicking on the link will lead you to the article in the library's holdings.
